The Basics

As one of Manhattan’s top destinations, Greenwich Village is a stop on most hop-on hop-off bus tours, which allow visitors to explore at their own pace without the hassle of navigating.

Private tours provide a more intimate experience, allowing guests to tack a stroll through Greenwich Village onto the day’s customized itinerary.

Greenwich Village food tours showcase the area’s array of hidden gems and independent eateries and typically include a selection of food and drink tastings. While daytime tours provide the best views of the High Line, Washington Square Park, and the Hudson River, evening walking tours and ghost tours offer a fresh perspective on the city illuminated under the night sky.

Jenn was wonderful. She was funny, witty, and mixed with the knowledge she has of NYC made it for a super fun time while learning about the area. It was a small group which made it feel private and personalized. I highly recommend this tour. The pizza place is now one of my favorites in the city. Thank you Jenn for a wonderful time.

Luke was very informative. Besides the “ghost” stories there was a lot of history, which I love. The next time I come to NY I plan to spend a few nights in Greenich Village. It’s a very lively and vibrant place!

Bob Dylan’s Village

Greenwich Village was not always an upscale neighborhood dotted with celebrity condos and boutiques. Steeped in 1960s counterculture, the Village was once a hub for artists, musicians, writers, and creatives, including Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Annie Leibovitz, and Joan Baez. Walking tours often highlight historic landmarks and these iconic figures’ former haunts, which visitors often miss if exploring on their own.
